NORWALK - Love letters detailing a secret romance that dates back to the 1950s were discovered hidden in the walls of a Norwalk home.

Vanessa Allen says her boyfriend found the love letters in the walls and under his foundation during a home renovation project. Allen says she has been going through the letters looking for clues in hopes of finding people related to the couple. She also found a picture of the woman she believes is the one referred to in the letters.

Allen says she believes the man in the letters is Ladislaus Kuhn or Laddie. She thinks he may have some connection to Saint Ladislaus Church near the home where the letters were found in South Norwalk. She says the couple may have worked together.

Allen adds that the couple may have eventually married because in later letters they have the same last name. Allen hopes to find someone who has a connection to the letters.
